Cheesy Creamy Vegetable Rice

My family always has to have a side dish or else dinner just isn't complete. I came up with this recipe from a mix of recipes. It's so good and such a comfort food, I could eat it everyday. The flavors are great together and it's so smooth and creamy and the vegetables give it great color and flavor. You can use any cooked vegetables you like. Adding corn or broccoli or even adding cooked diced chicken for a complete meal. I served this rice with breaded baked chicken and corn on the cob. It was delish!
